HUAWEI’s SME Support Program Aims To Help Economic Recovery In APAC
HUAWEI has just launched their SME Support Program with trusted ecosystem partners in Asia Pacific. The program is to help deliver further technical support for economic recovery amid the fight against the pandemic in the region.
HUAWEI’s SME Support Program to help drive the economy
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) account for over 97 per cent of all business and employ over half of the workforce across APEC economies. According to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, they contribute significantly to economic development, with their share of GDP varying from 40% to 60% in most APEC economies.
Businesses have been forced to accelerate their digital transformation and switch to the cloud one to three years ahead of schedule due to the pandemic. HUAWEI CLOUD is committed to strengthening the digital economy to facilitate long-term economic recovery and currently works with over 19,000 partners and 1.6 million developers.
Each qualifying SME applicant for the SME Support Program, which will be valid until December 31, 2021, will receive coupons worth up to USD3,000 (RM12406.50) and free professional consulting services. These include cutting-edge cloud solutions for a variety of industry scenarios including Financial Service, Education, E-commerce, Gaming, IoT, Application Development, and Enterprise Applications.
SMEs who have an account on the HUAWEI CLOUD official website but have never used a paid service can apply for help from cloud experts on the SME Support Program page. Applications will be evaluated based on the company’s cloud requirements and workload preparation for cloud deployment.
HUAWEI CLOUD currently offers over 220 services across categories including compute, storage, network, security, big data, AI, and IoT, as well as over 210 solutions for a wide range of industries. For more information on HUAWEI’s SME Support Program, do check out the official website here.
